The movie star made this known during a chat with veteran journalist Dele Momodu on Sunday, July 26, 2020.
Tonto while speaking on the importance of forgiveness, said she has come to realize that forgiveness is not about the next person but about one’s self.
“A man I love and respect always, talked to me about forgiveness and I have come to realize that forgiveness is not about the next person,” she said.
“I know that forgiveness is not about the next person but the explanation I got recently really wowed me. It says I have forgiven you not because you have to be forgiven, I have forgiven you because I do not want to put myself in a place of stagnation when it comes to growth.”
“I do not want to put myself in a place of stagnation when it comes to love, I do not want to put myself in a place of warship, progressing, my career.”
“Forgiveness is a whole lot and I only just realized that the bible says that if we do not forgive, God cannot forgive us. All these things are in the bible but it never really made an impact on me until someone really explained it.”
Momodu then asked the mother of one if she has forgiven her ex-husband, Olakunle.
“Oh yes, especially him. I forgive him and wish him the best, for my son’s sake. I do. Why not?” she replied.
Dikeh and Olakunle have been at loggerheads since their messy divorce in 2017.
These guys have called each other out on social media on several occasions, since their divorce, leaving many with the question ”When will this end?”.
Tonto Dikeh said again” YES, I SAID WHAT I SAID..
I forgive every single person who tried to hurt me(Knowingly and Unknowingly).
I deserve all the good things of life so yes I do accept the gift of forgiveness..
Yes you may not DESERVE/Or asked for my forgiveness but I’m giving it anyways not for your sake but FOR MY GROWTH..
Because I love myself so much, I am giving myself a chance to also be forgiven by my Heavenly Father!!
Ooo No I AINT asking for forgiveness in return, NEVER EVER WILL..
I am doing the right thing just for ME PERIOD!!
ALTHOUGH MY FORGIVENESS DONT MEAN I AM STUPID, NOT ALL FORGIVENESS NEEDS RECONNECTION..”.
